Earlier in the year, Baz gave a highly popular speech to a crowd of young people at TEDx Talks Youth@Bargate. In recognition of the importance of his message, his video is now available to a global audience on the international TED website alongside the world’s most innovative thinkers.

Baz’s speech is an impassioned discussion about how the people you choose to surround yourselves with can shape your future. Baz recounts his past; from gang activity and a growing criminal record which led to a near fatal knife attack, to the positive influence of boxing.
